Nashville's Downtown Riverfront Station serves the Music City Star as well as dedicated bus services to other sections of town.
The Lebanon station, on the east end of the route, serves residents and workers in fast-growing Wilson County.
Ridership in early 2011 was over 1,000 passengers per day - an all-time record for Tennessee's only commuter train!
No passenger rail system is complete without coordinated bus connections, and the Music City Star has plenty!

Transit Alliance of Middle Tennessee presents: Middle Tennessee: On the Move from Transit Alliance of Middle TN on Vimeo.

What began as an "experiment" in the summer of 1991 has now become reality for Nashville and Wilson County!

On September 18th, 2006, the Music City Star began weekday commuter rail service from Lebanon, Martha, Mt. Juliet, Hermitage, and Donelson to Nashville's Riverfront Park downtown.

We are very fortunate to welcome this new era of transportation options for Middle Tennessee. In the not-too-distant future, we anticipate seeing additional routes and services for other surrounding counties, including Cheatham, Dickson, Maury, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, and Williamson.

Join TARP and help us promote the expansion of commuter rail and all other forms of rail and mass transit for the benefit of our beloved Volunteer State!

How Commuter Rail Will Benefit Nashville:

The benefits from commuter rail are numerous, to say the least.


Help us make the Music City Star the best it can be! Join TARP and help make a difference in Tennessee's quality of life!
